LEWIS, Barbara Elaine (nee Campbell) 1925 – 2016 With heavy hearts we tell of the passing of Barbara, peacefully at St. Paul's Hospital on January 27, 2016. To mourn their loss are husband Merrick, daughter Kathryn, sons Robert, Timothy, Paul (Shannon), grandson Braden, sister Dorothy Blair, nephew Peter (Bev), nephew Robin, niece Jeanette (Tom), nieces Yvonne and Judy, grandnieces Caroline and Jacqueline and grandnephew Paul (Tara), other relatives and many dear friends. Barbara was born and lived in Kingston, Jamaica, W.I.

They returned to Jamaica and resided in Kingston, Montego Bay and Christiana; the family migrated to Canada, first to Edmonton then settling in Vancouver in 1965.

Barbara had an active, productive, adventurous life; endeared by all who knew her. May her soul rest in peace. The commendation of the Urn to the Columbaria by Rev. Fr.

Ray started playing hockey in Calgary with the Pee Wee Rangers in the Buffalo Association. Ray proceeded through the ranks and played three years with the Jr. A Buffalos, playing in the Western Canada Memorial Cup Finals. Ray played the next two years with the Penticton Vees. He then returned to Calgary to resume his railroad career and to marry the love of his life, Margaret, and start a family. From 1952 to 1956 Ray played hockey with the CPR Beavers in the BIG 6 League. Ray was a founding member of the Buffalo Ranger Association and turned his attention to supporting his sons in their hockey endeavours. After his retirement from CPR, Ray embarked on a scouting career with the Dallas Stars Hockey Club and was proud to be a part of the organization when Dallas won the Stanley Cup in 1999. The family would like to thank the staff at Birchwood and Valley Haven Guest Home for their care. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, February 15, 2016 at Woodlawn Mt.

SHAW, Andrew Augustine September 16, 1928 - January 17, 2016 Andy died in Vancouver from complications arising from Alzheimer's disease, from which he had been suffering for several years. He had a fulfilling life and has now rejoined his dearest friend and adored wife, Florence Shaw, who died in 2009. He is survived by his sons Tony (Angie), Greg, John (Tema), and Andy (Marion); his grandchildren Holly, Joëlle, Diana, Jean-Luc, Ben, Meredith, and Oriana; and many other cherished relatives and friends. Born in St. John's, Andy was a proud Newfoundlander. Over the course of a career of nearly forty years in the shipping industry, he held senior executive roles with ship owners, operations management and port development across Canada - St. John's, Montreal, Vancouver and Nanaimo. He was recognized for his determination and integrity. A child of the Depression, he worked hard to give his children opportunities that he never had. Family was always his focus: his enthusiasm for his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews was endearing and enduring; his love for Flos was spectacular. He was a lovely man - warm-hearted, charming and full of fun - and they were a fabulous couple. Their sixty-year love affair was an inspiration. We thank the staff of Sunrise of Vancouver for the tender care they have provided Andy since Flos died. We also wish to recognize the thoughtful support provided by his doctor, Stanley Sunshine, especially in Andy's final days. We particularly wish to thank Eileen Collins, Andy's beloved sister-in- law, for her unstinting love and support throughout his long illness. A Celebration of his Life will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, 2465 Crown Street, Vancouver, BC, at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 20, 2016. A Burial Service in St. John's will be arranged at a later date. In his memory, please consider a donation to the Alzheimer Society of BC (300 - 828 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1E2 or online at www.alzheimer.ca/bc ).
